Agree that 1974 was THE year for the most consistent ChinaRider monsters.

The Dix Pick mentioned above, which has 2 1/2 mins. of gorgeous SPACE before China even begins is to me, still the best. And they groove on the China theme for a good 3 mins. before even beginning the first verse...

2nd place for me is a tie between Johnny's 5/19/74 and a brilliant one from 2/24/74:

Outrageous transition MLB/Feelin'Groovy section (whatever you wanna call it) into the Rider.

Grand version.

I think '82 was the best year for China Riders. Tough to compare to the early 70's versions, but as for the 80's, I think '82 takes the cake.

8/7/82, 8/10/82, 9/5/82

also 8/21/83 is a great one
